You just don't get it. The people like what he stands for. He will be an excellent board member. He is a smart man and a good man. He is greatly missed at the high school, but he had a higher calling. There's a difference between revenge and restoring sanity to this district...but I have to admit it's awesome that the man the board tried to force out will be sitting on the board. The fact the the community willingly put educators on the school board is very telling of just how strongly the community opposed the direction of the current board. Advice: just sit back and enjoy the new direction of this board, one that truly puts kids first.
Ron Malone?
Kids first?
LOL! LOL!

To make a claim that a given individual's past popularity can be used as a measurement of their future effectiveness is nothing less than a logical fallacy.

Of course our former principal of 13 years has been and still is "insanely popular". Whether or not current high school students and Boro graduates realize it, Malone was busy being every student's "best friend" while their former principal lobbied for addition of more elective classes so that he could ensure employment for teachers with poor skills. These elective classes continued to see poor enrollment until many of them had to be cancelled by this board. What Ron Malone did best was throw this district's gifted and struggling students under the academic bus.
I could go on about Malone's lack of leadership during the booster scandal but everyone already knows about that. I suppose the only unanswered question is, beginning Jan 2014, what other sorts of damage might Malone be capable of inflicting to this district's students?

Ohhh, you mean the 3 soon-to-be school board members whom this community overwhelmingly supports? They won't be sucking up to the unions, but the teachers will finally be respected by their board as they should. Now, you misguided souls will manage to interpret this respect as "sucking up" to the union, but the majority of the community feels it's time to respect the teachers and truly put children first. Can't wait!!!!!!
If there is a sense of turbulence in our comunity, it has been manufactured by those who oppose change, wish to suffocate debatesthey would lose, and return to the days of enless leves,punitive actions against our citizens, and never ending financial emergencies within the district.

In November, 2011, this community put our trust in two
reform-minded Children's First Budgeting board representatives, David Petroni and Jim Rigano; and Today we still trust their leadership and support te progress made in the past two years.

Now the community has trusted three others, Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, Mr. Stuckey to join Mr.Petroni and Mr. Rigano and get to work using their individual skills to work as a great team
with Mr. Petrey and our school district leaders putting Students First, RAISING THE BAR FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS.

If there is a sense of turbulence in our comunity, it has been manufactured by those who oppose change, wish to suffocate debates they would lose, and return to the days of enless leves,punitive actions against our citizens, and never ending financial emergencies within the district.

Our current board members, Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano, in less
than TWO years of their financial expertise and skillful leadership, have built a financial foundation on the the principle of fiscal responsibility, continuing to make changes that make sense; for example, eliminating underutlized courses to fill needs in other areas. They won't coninue relationships with service providers that don'tproved the best value jst because working with them has been past practice. They WILL emand integrity from everyone our board works with from Boosters to Vendors, from Students to Aministrators.

The fear o change will not chase our community back into the darkness of previously failed practices.

change their PAST experiences of status quo business as usual; and keep the trust that voters have shown in their ability to broaden their VISION of RAISING THE BAR FOR OUR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS?

You all are delusional. No worries. My voice was heard and the majority of the community and I are on the same page. You guys go right ahead and stay in your tiny little world. The lack of respect you have for our teachers, fortunately, is not shared by the rest of the community. The current board is a joke, and I thank God that the people who supported them are in the clear minority. I agree that the board should work together. Will Petroni and Rigano finally realize that the majority of their policies and tactics are not welcome here? Doubtful. However, I hope they choose to work with MSA.

By the way, he lobbied for more electives to offer students a more well-rounded set of offerings. The new principal wants to expand electives as well. Why aren't you calling HER out?

Regardless, I take solace in knowing you all are the minority. I think I might attend the last few board meetings to catch Kohls, Rigano, and Petroni's last ditch efforts to screw things up. A lame duck president and her cronies panicking may be quite a show.

Why didn't Kohls run again? She saw the writing on the wall. She felt the tide turning against her. She knew she would be handily defeated so she spared herself the stress and embarrassment. That's the only reason someone so power hungry wouldn't run. Good riddance. I will give her a standing ovation on the way out. Of course she and her supporters are so delusional that they'll think the raucous applause is to thank her. Um, no, it's a sense of relief that we are no longer under her regime.

You all are so bitter that Springboro saw right through your feigned transparency and voted people into the board who care about kids. For the last few years, everyone kept saying, "It will get better." It just did!

YOU trust Petroni and Rigano. The majority of the community does not. They will be voted out in two years. Considering the like-minded Bitner-Vaughn ticket was of course supported by the pizza guys, it seems their loss was a statement against the current leadership. All any candidate had to do to win this election was state that they were against the direction of KPR and they were shoo-ins. You are sorely mistaken if you believe Petroni and Rigano have a chance of staying in office.(Personally, I'm ok if they stay - as long as they aren't the majority. I'm all for The Voice of the Other)

Don't worry, it'll all become crystal clear to you in two years.

Yes, we did get exactly what we wanted, and thank GOD! You, however, did not get what you want because the community got its voice back. Yes, we are still raving about our win because you fools can't seem to accept it and continue to bad-mouth MSA and their supporters. I fully support Anderson and Stuckey. The only reason I mentioned just Dr. Malone is because he's the one you were ridiculing. No, the board did NOT listen to its constituents - it did all it could to quiet them, in fact. I will, however, join you in thanking the current board. Thank you, Mr. Miller, for attempting to be the voice of reason on this divisive board. It's a shame you were outnumbered. Mrs. Kull, thank you for sometimes thinking for yourself. As for Petroni, Kohls, and Rigano, thank you for bringing this community together. Your antics and poor leadership reminded people how important local elections are. We are forever indebted to you for reminding us that we have a voice, and we used that voice to take out schools back from you, so thank you!
Do you also want to thank the current board for the $5M surplus, return of busing, reduced pay to play, reduced renewal levy, upgrade to technology, building maintenance and improvement, move for higher student standards, accountability?

Many of the things they take credit for happened DESPITE them, not because of them. I acknowledge that they did a couple of good things here and there - it would be nearly impossible for a school board to screw up EVERYTHING - but no, I really just thank the triumvirate-no-more for awakening this community.

...no need for a crystal clear direction in two years; just stay the course in the CLEAR direction of TRUST in our Children's First Budget reform minded board leaders, Mr. Rigano and Mr. Petroni.

As we seek to build confidence in our schools for everyone,
others seek to build mistrust. From the outside, we've been labeled controversial.

Zero-based budgets and efficiency plans are not controversial.
Updated technology and curriculum are not controversial.

Buses that run and roofs that don't leak are not controversial.

Putting children first is reasonable, not controversial.

Where the integrity was not maintained from within, it is our right and our duty to rebuilt it together. We will continue to work in the direction of confidence to restore integrity and trust in our schools....

and Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners fully support the progress made in the past two years...

Can We Trust Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, and Mr. Stuckey to work
together as a TEAM with our current board members, Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano AND our school district leaders?

Or, will Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, and Mr. Stuckey yield in the board room to the anger and hostility of those who are determined to revengefully continue opposing the board members who are doing what's right for our schools and community?

Has Mr. Malone awakened to the reality that he doesn't work for the union in the board room. As an elected BOE official, he's in Taxpayers employ now, fully accountable for every decision he makes with our children's school tax dollas.

Are your Blah blah blah comments telling Taxpayers that Ron Malone ran for election to gain control of our school tax dollars, with the pre-arranged "sole" intent to destroy the progress that our current five individual board members have accomplished, in the past two years?

It is agreed that our community is "awakened" to the failed practices of Ron Malone's leadership as high school principal for the PAST thirteen years. State tests rsults show after years in our district's educational system, only 32% of our children were able to score 75% or better on Ohio Achievement Assessment math tests.

It is agreed that our community is "awakened" (thanks to private citizen and Springboro parent, Doug Wiedeman) to the fact of
Ron Malone's failure to put our Students First; and that Ron
Malone ran our Springboro High School Program of Studies like a "union shop" making up classes with scant demand to ensure employement for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic robbed resources from areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and those
in need of early intervention.

Inquiring Minds continue to question WHY Ron Malone now feels empowered to "run" our school district in the same oligarchical government way in which he ran the Springboro High School as building principal for the past 13 years?

Why does Blah blah blah continue gloating about Ron Malone's
evil pre-arranged vote for revenge AGAINST our children's 21st century classroom education, with a highly qualified, well paid classroom teacher, who supports the highest academic achievement for ALL Springboro students and MAINTAINING fiscal integrity for
the future of our schools and community?

Does Blah blah blah KNOW that this projection, on this blog, of Ron Malone's Pre-Planned hostile leadership agenda, as just ONE of our FIVE school board members, will be rendered as "powerless"
among our FIVE board members, in Ron Malone's SOLE efforts to tear down our good schools, and the progress in our children's classroom education, that has been made in the last two years by our current reform minded board members?

Why would civic-minded taxpayers who take PRIDE in supporting our great schools and community with our hard earned money, just
sit back with No Worries, for Two more years, while our has been

like a "union shop" doing business as usual, the status quo insanely popular Principal Ron way?

You. Don't. Get it. The majority of the community does not see what the triumvirate-no-more has done in this district over the last two years as progress. Quite the contrary. We can't wait for the new board to work together for the benefit of all in the district, and yes, that includes the teachers. Ron Malone is one of five and will happily work with the entire board to repair the damage that has been done and to continue the handful of good things the last board accomplished. The community is looking forward to a school board that respects its teachers and students enough to listen to them and one that will not resort to unethical, underhanded tactics to push its own political agenda. The Tea Party, on both a national and local level, was a fad, and its voice diminishes more and more every day. The triumvirate-no-more rode the wave, but people are jumping ship in alarming numbers. Say what you want about Ron Malone - we know that you crazies are just beside yourselves that the community is done with your crap. As I've said before,I hope Wiedeman vocally supports Petroni and Rigano if they stupidly waste their money on a bid for reelection because it's obvious that his endorsement is the kiss of death. To repeat since your thick skulls are failing to hear the community: WE WANT THE NEW BOARD TO UNDO MUCH OF WHAT HAS BEEN DONE BY THE CURRENT BOARD. WE WANT COHESION AND RESPECT. WE DO NOT WANT A BOARD THAT SEEKS TO PUSH ITS POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS ON THIS COMMUNITY. It's a Beautiful thing that the community's pride - its schools - is no longer under crappy leadership and can MOVE ON. I'm all for fiscal responsibility, but the way this board handled charter school discussions, creationism, disrespect of its staff, etc. was not right and the community will not stand for it anymore, and we proved it by putting MSA in office. Unlike the current board, MSA will listen to the community who, by the way, believes the teachers deserve more respect than they have been getting, believes that creationism doesn't belong in schools, believes that charter schools are unnecessary in a school of our caliber, etc. you all need to realize that the community thinks the current board sucks and to continue ue many of their policies and tactics would be plain stupid.
